I’m still pretty new to 3D Printing, and I’ve been doing some decent prints using HIPS.
I’ve started noticing something in some of my prints, where it seems either the print head or the material is compressing or collapsing. I’ve attached two images from my latest print.
You’ll see there is a good portion of the lower part of the print where there is plastic that seems to be bulging out. It seems to resolve itself later on, after a certain height.
The print was made with standard HIPS settings in Cura.
As a side note, I’ve also noticed when I tried PLA with this print, it seems like the head was grinding over the surface of the print when it moved over the body of it to the other side.
